Heartwood was written with young adults in mind, but its genre-bending story could be appreciated by a wider demographic. The first concept was developed by the client's expressed wish for a hands/fruit scenario, while I fleshed out the second concept to give readers the impression of an ancient spellbook. While the book might fall into the category of Fantasy Fiction , it has strong overtones of H.G. Wells-esque science fiction and invented mythologies.
